New in the AFi Archive – JLU 3-pack: Goldface, Evil Star & Kyle Rayner
February 20, 2011

Just as I arrived back from NYC from Toy Fair 2011 a new box of samples from Mattel arrived.   I gave AFi readers a chance to vote on what from the box I covered first and the vote came back JLU!

Here is the first of the 3 new JLU 3-packs I’ll be showing you featuring Evil Star, Goldface and Kyle Rayner Green Lantern.   This will be one of the 3-packs that will be available at Mattel’s Collector Appreciation Convention tour.

The significance of this set is that this is the first time that Evil Star AND Goldface are available as poseable action figures.   We’ve gotten Kyle before as a single carded release back in 2008. Both Goldface and Evil Star leaked on ebay before their announcement.

This will come with the outer mailer type boxes typical to Mattel convention and MattyCollector items.  There is also an inner insert on these to protect of the cardback.  These 3 new three packs are on the new 2011 JLU cardback.

You can see all the pictures of this set here in the AFi Archives.

I’ll have the other two 3-packs up in the archives soon. 

This sample was provided by Mattel.

Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on,,, Boing-Boing,, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
